CLM Focus: Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, Management Liability, Medical Malpractice, Product Liability, Professional Liability, Transportation, Claims & Litigation Management

Claims and Litigation Management Alliance
October 19–20, 2021
Chicago, Illinois
The Claims and Litigation Management (CLM) Alliance will host CLM Focus: Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, Management Liability, Medical Malpractice, Product Liability, Professional Liability, Transportation, Claims & Litigation Management in Chicago on October 19–20, 2021.

Christian Hoyos, Ph.D., Exponent senior scientist, will speak on a panel discussing “Human Factors and Product Liability: Issues of the Present and Future” on Tuesday, October 19, at 1:15 PM PT/3:15 PM CT. The panel will address the application of human factors principles to the investigation and analysis of transportation incidents (including automobiles, trucks, bicycles, pedestrians), and consumer products (design, development, injuries, warnings, instructions, and training). The discussion will also cover emerging advanced vehicle technologies and the corresponding human issues that come along with developing technologies. By understanding the role and influence of attention, cognition, vision, and behavior of individuals operating a vehicle, human factors practitioners can offer invaluable insight into the development of technology design as well as the analysis of driver behavior.

Megan Toney-Bolger, Ph.D., P.E., Exponent managing engineer, will also be speaking at the conference as part of a panel on “How to Investigate, Analyze, and Defend New Vehicle Technology Claims” on Tuesday, October 19, at 2:30 PM PT/4:30 PM CT. The panel will explore how advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), such as automatic emergency braking, forward-collision warning, and lane-keeping assist, are changing the capabilities and limitations of vehicles as well as how people interact with them. These changes will undoubtedly impact the issues and claims brought with respect to these systems as well as provide the need for new scientific and engineering approaches to understand and describe the regulatory environment, the technological and design considerations, the driver vehicle interaction, and the data provided from the vehicle. The implications of these changes will be discussed in the context of investigating and defending claims about ADAS equipage and performance from a regulatory, design, human factors, and incident investigation perspective.

Exponent is a proud sponsor of the 2021 CLM Focus Conference.
